"21st century Greiz, scene 1" Gera Off The Beaten Path Tip by Nemorino

Gera Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 6 photos

  Greiz at 7:32 a.m.
by Nemorino

If somebody wanted to write a silly operetta about Greiz in the 21st century, they should be sure to include a couple of short scenes in the Schlossberg Hotel, which is on the third, fourth and fifth floors of the above-mentioned sterile new shopping center at Marienstraße 1-5.

The first scene would show a suave and dashingly handsome hotel guest (this would be the lead tenor role) trying to find his way into the hotel. This should be good for a couple of laughs because there is no entrance as such. The door marked "Hotel" is locked, and nobody answers the bell, so he has to find his way up through the nearly deserted shopping center (fortunately the escalators are still running) until he finally finds a corridor on the third floor with a sign saying "Hotel" and an arrow pointing down the hall.
